From sea to shining sea and every limpid pool in between - blue represents peace and calm to me. Deep indigo, nautical navy, electrifying cobalt, cool cerulean, tantalizing turquoise and the most subtle of sky - each imbued with a wonderful wistfulness, the promise of refreshment, of longing and delight.
These colors conjure up summer hours, cloudless skies, toes in the ocean, and perching by the pool. They're a cool counterpoint to oppressive heat, and a watery relief on the driest of days. Is there any other shade that soothes the soul in quite the same way?
With all of its allure, It's no wonder that blue is the world's most beloved hue.
